Diverse City’s Covid-19 Statement

Following Government advice, here is Diverse City’s Covid-19 statement. We have temporarily postponed projects and productions involving direct contact. Here is our plan of action:

Right now, we are:

  • Looking after our family of artists, support workers and production staff and meeting our financial responsibilities to them.
  • Monitoring the situation and we’ll adjust our approach in line with Government advice. 
  • Available to support you. If you need our help please ask. Whilst our teams are healthy and able to, we are happy and keen to be useful.

Moving forward, we will:

  • Plan to use this time to fundraise, plan and offer our support to others in our communities.
  • Think about how we can share our existing films, music and writing online.
  • Offer our support and solidarity to freelance artists and support workers.
  • Work out with you how to make sure that our future together is good.

Secondly, a brilliant online database of creative isolation tools by MARCH Network. “With more people socially and physically distancing themselves, we want to share some home-based, creative ways to support mental health during these unique and uncertain times”.
